Youth Disc Golf League
In disc golf, the terminology sounds familiar: There are tee boxes, fairways and greens; pars, bogeys, birdies and eagles. Occasionally, there is also an “ace.” Players throw discs designed for the sport toward metal baskets or “holes.” As in ball golf, the object is to get it into the hole in the fewest number of strokes. Like regular golf, terrain, trees and water might stand in the way; and just as there are drivers and irons and putters, disc golfers may carry different discs designed for driving, approaches and putts.

About Our Courses
Bailey Road Park
Bailey Road Park Disc Golf Course was re-designed in 2010 from a 9 hole course to 20 holes by Mark Huether. The new layout is longer and now winds its way around the southeast corner of the park to expand the area used by the public. Volunteers from the Charlotte Disc Golf Club and the Town of Cornelius, with the support of PARC staff, worked more than six months to lay out and complete the course. This beginner-friendly course was designed to be your first course. Holes are mostly open (6 wooded) but baskets are placed around obstacles to promote different shot making. Most baskets are visible from the teepads. This is a great course to bring a family or to practice midrange shots after work. There are 20 full holes here with concrete tee pads. 13A and 13B form a loop between 13 and 14. The layout is mostly flat and 30% wooded. Tall grass defines many of the fairways and scoring well will depend on a variety of different throws.
Robbins Park (Parking and 1st Tee access are located at Westmoreland Athletic Complex, adjacent to Robbins Park)
Robbins Park Disc Golf Course was designed by Mark Huether and built in 2014 with the support of the Charlotte Disc Golf Club and PARC staff and is considered an intermediate course. The course is located behind the Westmoreland Athletic Complex baseball fields and is not accessible from the Robbins Park playground area. This course winds in and out of woods that border a small creek. All elevation changes were incorporated, as the course crisscrosses in and out of the woods, open utility right-of-way, and old farm fields. While designed to test the advancing skills of players that began at Bailey Road Park, there are long tees that will challenge all levels of players. Early summer is an especially pretty time to play. As one of Lake Norman's largest natural homes to beautiful milkweed plants, you are assured to enjoy your round with at least a few Monarch butterflies feeding on the flowers.
